The future of road cycling

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

He's riding on the wrong side of the road!!!

No but seriously, that's really cool. I was looking for a way to overlay Garmin data onto a video and I think I've found a good model.

HUD is also a good idea.

somebody needs to make a website where you can upload a video and the GPS data, and it would just spit out the finished product..

although i'm not sure how big the market is for something like that.

I hope so. Although that screen looks a little cluttered. It is coming and it will be awesome

Okay. I'm going to trademark that. I promise to give you a cut for the idea.

It's just a matter of time before a car manufacturer makes a HUD for targeting cyclists.

A pair of sunglasses that allows you to see everything displayed on your smartphone’s screen as if it were right in front of your eyes though it is securely hidden in your pocket? Yes, as you are wearing a pair of Maverix HUD sunglasses. You can still check your emails, read your txt messages, or watch movies. Turn on your iPhone, Blackberry, or PDA’s Bluetooth, and the Maverix will automatically detect and connect to it, beaming your screen on to the lenses in full color.

Using recently unclassified military technology, the Maverix HUD Sunglasses are shoulders above other mobile accessories. On the outside, they just look like your everyday run-of-the-mill sunglasses, but slipping them on plunges you into a shaded world where anything is possible. It uses a state-of-the-art in-lens processor that powers microscopic photovoltaic sensors built into the lenses. These sensors are capable of tracking pupil and facial muscle movement. Meaning, you can control your smart phone’s pointer at a glance, just look at what you want to select and in the blink of an eye, the program or web page you selected will open. Iris recognition interfaces and pupil dilation sensors give you absolute control over the heads up display.

And take note, they work without using batteries. The Maverix HUD sunglasses have two metal contact points on the glasses’ arms that harness the electrical energy pulses from your brain. Yeah, they just use the power of your mind to function. Cool! Sounds like something straight out of a James Bond flick. Well the great thing about this is, not only is it futuristic, it also protects your eyes from harmful UV rays. Grab one now right here.

You mean patent. And you can't really patent a general concept; it has to be at least a bit tangible.
